Red Carpet Ready

By: Amidon Jewelers

Red carpet at the Tony Awards glamour combines with the best of Broadway actors, dancer and singers. The Tony Awards were held on June 8, at Radio City Music Hall in the big city of New York, and the stars did not upset as they posed for the cameras in the highest of fashion, bejeweled with sparkling jewels.   The Tony Awards, which were originally known as the Antoinette Perry Award for Excellence in Theatre, recognizes the best performance by actors and actresses, the best musical and play, best revival of a musical and play, best director, best original score, best choreography, best scenic design, costume design and lighting, among numerous other technical categories. The Tony Awards are the New York Theatre Industry’s equivalent to the Oscars, Emmy’s and Grammy’s. The awards are presented by the American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League.   The rules for the most amazing Tony Awards are written in the official document that apply only to one specific season, which means that the rules can legally change year to year.   The 2014 Awards contained 24 categories. Some of the winners included Jessie Mueller, Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald, Bryan Cranston, Mark Rylance, Lena Hall. Darko Tresnjak and Kenny Leon. A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder won Best Musical.   Awards aren’t just for performers; in 2009 a new award was established, called the Isabelle Stevenson Award. This award recognizes an individual who has made a substantial contribution by volunteering some time on behalf of social service or charitable organization and humanitarian organization. This award went to Rosie O’Donnell in 2014.   Even if acting, singing and dancing aren’t your forte, you can emulate the stars of Broadway by choosing jewels that are inspired by those worn on the red carpet.
